Asociación de Productores Acuícolas de Imacita - Bagua


Country: Peru
Description: In order to address recent malnourishment problems due to a lack of protein rich foods (which were previously abundant), the native population of Imacita decided to recondition 60 natural pools and optimize the use of mirrors in order to produce 50,000 tropical fish, expecting to obtain 10,000 kg. of fresh fish meat. Involving 10 Awajun Native Communities, this project has a business focus due to the communities' desire to transcend their role as beneficiaries of international support and achieve financial sustainability.
